When you go for a walk in the morning with a camera you never really know just what kind of pictures you’ll get. One of the fun things is seeing what the photos look like full size.
The morning of this photo I took a number of pics. Several were from almost exactly the same spot, a place where a couple of decent pics were taken the week before.
Here it is… My Favorite Sunrise Photo from 2011:
And… Here are two photos taken the week before in almost the same spot:
What is amazing to me is how different these last two photos are from each other when they were taken only a few minutes apart from almost the same spot.
Even tho I like all three photos, the top one with the Sun shining thru the tops of the Timothy Hay is my favorite. Aren’t I lucky to live on a farm in Northern Minnesota where there are so many great chances to take pictures?
Click on any of the pictures if you’d like to buy it on Greeting Cards or as a large Print.
A ray of light is just about ready to shoot out and beam me up. Oh, I can hear the spooky music in my head. Where is my tinfoil hat? Click the image to see it larger.
Well… Actually it is not a UFO. It’s a pic taken looking thru a 3 foot diameter Concrete pipe that was put under a road in Northern Minnesota last Summer. I didn’t think about taking a photo of it till yesterday, 23 February 2012.
What do you think, is it really a UFO, or am I just using a cover story that it’s a pipe under the road so folks won’t think I’m a crazy nut?
Anyway… If you’d like an interesting conversation piece, you can Buy a copy of the photo on a Greeting Card or Print.
Mushrooms were plentiful in 2010 and a pleasure to check out on photo walks. There was something new and different to see every day. And… There was always the hope that I’d get to see a Fairy hiding under one of the mushrooms.
Pretty Pink Fairy Shelters are shown in this close up photo of pink mushrooms taken in Northern Minnesota, as the day dawned on 24 June 2010. Despite careful observation no fairies were spotted, they must have all been hiding.
Ummm… After enlarging the photo and examining it carefully, the wing of a Fairy might just be poking out from behind a blade of grass, and showing up in the photo. Yep, It just has to be a Fairy hiding out there. 🙂
Spring and Summer are a great time to be taking photos of Nature and Wildflowers. I’m lucky to have quite a few wildflowers growing nearby.
The Tiger lily flowers were blooming and covered with dew during a morning walk in 2010. What a great time to take a bunch of close up photos.
This Lovely Orange spotted Tiger Lily close up photo with a Heart shaped Stigma is beautiful. This wildflower’s name is Lilium michiganense, sometimes called Turks cap lily, or Turks turban.
A new, inexpensive way to spruce up a wall with this photo is with a Wall Decal. It’s available in several sizes. The photo is also available as Posters, Mounted Prints, Canvas, and Framed Prints.
Finding this unique and beautiful flower with a natural heart was a wonderful bit of luck and brightened my day. Hope it brightens your day too. What do you think the chances are of ever getting another photo like this are?
Isn’t it great to start the day with a beautiful Sunrise? Everything seems to go so much better when Nature provides a great day with a bright Sun coming up.
It’s a lot of fun to go for a walk and try getting a decent photo on a lovely morning like this. Finding just the right spot where the scene looks good often put me into interesting positions. For this photo… I was laying down on the ice along the edge of the Mississippi river bank. I came home with quite a few pics taken from different perspectives. This one seemed to stand out.
There was lots of frost along the Mississippi river as I went for a walk this morning shortly after Sunrise. I started snapping photos of the Sun shining thru frost covered branches before even leaving the yard.
At the edge of the river bank beautiful fractal shaped frost crystals were coating the brush, branches, and grass. Oh! What fun it was trying to get some good photos. Here are a couple that turned out fairly decent.
Finding a spot where the light was good and getting a decent focus for the close up photo was challenging, but fun.
